Designer Varija Bajaj’s ode to the real heroes

The collection gets inspiration from people who fight it out real time

Posted on 18/09/2016 By

There are heroes on the silver screen who are good, fight all evils and leave us in awe. Then there are Super Heroes, who fight battles in real lives to protect others, the soldiers from services constantly battling for our peace and happiness, who leave us feeling gratified. And then, there are the real heroes, who leave us speechless, people with disabilities- fighting it out constantly and consistently, the taboos of society at large, their own health, insecurities and a continuous effort to prove their abilities over disabilities.

The showstopper for the evening was a five year old boy Shubham, who battles down syndrome with his contagious smile. “He is a REAL HERO who redefined the meaning of a show-stopper for me in this fashion world. He fights this society, its taboos and his own health problems, so heroically that I salute to him, and many others through this collection. We stand united to fight along, this battle of Shubham, and so many others,” says Varija.
